    Hi,

    Hope someone can help with this question.


    Is it possible for a dodgy CPU to fry a motherboard, the reason I ask Is that I swapped a CPU in a test board & it didn’t work, so I put the old one back in, but that didn’t work either & now the board won’t boot at all.


    I realise that it might just be coincidental that the board failed at that time & it’s also possible that static caused the fault but it seems like the CPU is most likely responsible.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Regards

    CDH
